Lamborghini to build Sesto Elemento
Today, at the Frankfurt motor show, Lamborghini chief Stephan Winkelmann confirmed the Sesto Elemento - the 999kg ode to carbon fibre that stole the floor at last year’s Paris motor show - will go into a limited series production. Yes, today is a good day.
Only 20 will be made. For track use only. Get your name in now.

It’s a two-seat, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe built on an aluminum architecture and offers perfect 50:50 weight distribution. It measures 4,445mm long and 1,297mm tall (for reference, the new 911 measures 4,535mm in length). It’s also the smallest Jaguar built since 1954 and the XK120.
Now, the good part: it’s going into production. Soon. We’ll likely see the C-X16 at the end of 2012 with a naturally-aspirated V6, supercharged V6 and a hybrid. Diesel and V8 variants will probably follow, if you ask nicely…
